Stamped: Sally Hansen Lightening with Zoya Channing


 I wish I had had more time with this one. My grandmother turned 75 the other day, and this is the mani I did for her party. She likes autumnal colors like these, but I did the stamping as I was getting ready and I was just too rushed. Channing stamped really well though, so I'll have to try this again some time. The plate I used was CH33.

Base coats are Orly Nailtrition and Bonder. Top coat is Seche Vite.

Essie Sole Mate tipped with Zoya Blaze


 This bottle of Essie is one I picked up on clearance. The sticker says that the color is called Sole Mate and it's beautiful deep, vampy burgundy. To give it a bit of sparkle I sponged some Zoya Blaze on the tips. I think think would be fabulously glamorous to wear to a wedding or a fancy party.

Butter London Trout Pout with Vivid Lacquer You Are NOT My Nemesis

This came out so awesome. I'm a huge fan of Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog, so when Anni at Vivid Lacquer did a collection based on it last year, I had to have at least most of them. You Are NOT My Nemesis is white shreds, blue diamonds and blue hexes in a clear base. Coupled with the gorgeous summery salmon color of Trout Pout, this mani just makes me want to lay out by my imaginary pool.

Skittles Mani - Hedy's Ma.Nish.Ma Neons with Vivid Lacquer Wish Upon A Star


A friend lead me to this set of neons on EBay and they are wonderful, I'm so glad I snagged a set. My favorite feature? The fact that they don't require undies! Yup, all that color is just from the polish! They're actually matte that turned shiny with SV and there's a sixth color, a lighter blue that is kind of turquoise-y. Then I added that fabulous glitter coat by Vivid Lacquer. Wish Upon A Star is all kinds of silver holo glitter shapes - stars, diamonds, hexes and squares. I didn't get to wear this for very long, but the colors are all so cheerful and happy, I may do it again soon.

Base coats were Orly Nailtrition and Bonder, top coat was Seche Vite.

Butter London Two Fingered Salute

I'm just a posting fool this week! Hehehe. This shot is a polish that's just gorgeous. It's Butter London's Two Fingered Salute, a patina green with bronze micro glitter running all through it. I've never seen anything like it! I love the formula on these polishes - I've never put on a Butter London that's been anything but smooth and easy to handle. Base coats are Orly Nailtrition and Bonder, top coat is Seche Vite.

Revlon Royal plus Vivid Lacquer The Harlequin's Adoration



This was so hard to photograph, but it was incredibly beautiful in person. The Harlequin's Adoration has this coppery shimmer in it that made Royal look almost like Max Factor's Fantasy Fire. Just unbelievable. Then on top of that, you've got the multitude of little glitters, red hearts and both black and white diamonds. Fabulous.

Try It On Tuesday: Vivid Lacquer Theoretical Blogger and A England Lady of the Lake


I love Vivid Lacquer's Theoretical collection so hard. There's depth and sparkle that I just can't capture on camera. This is Theoretical Blogger, a beautiful lavender with several sizes of darker purple glitters in it. Then I went over it with NYC Matte Me Crazy and added french tips in A England Lady of the Lake. Oh My God, this is my perfect purple. It's the most amazing blue leaning royal purple with a ton of holo glitter in it. Yum fest.

Base coats are Orly Nailtrition and Bonder. Top coat is Seche Vite applied to just the A England.
